Browns Injured Linebacker Will Miss The Rest Of The 2022 Season

Last night, the Cleveland Browns defeated their division rival in the Pittsburgh Steelers, and while everything seemed to go well, linebacker Anthony Walker was carted off the field with a leg injury, not to return. Today, the team received the worst news possible, as it has been announced that Walker will miss the rest of the 2022/23 season, but will be back in time for the pre-season in 2023.

Unfortunately for Walker, it appears that he suffered a torn quad tendon, and will need surgery to repair it, and with the usual recovery time for this surgery around 5-7 months, he will be kept out of action until training camp next season.

This is a big blow for the Browns, who were already missing Chase Winovich and Jadaveon Clowney on the defensive side of the ball this game, and while they escaped with a win on Thursday, the effects may be felt as they head into Week 4. Right now, the Browns have played three very good games (with the exception of two minutes in Week 2), and while this may hurt, they should be able to cover this injury and continue competing in a tough AFC North division for the rest of the 2022 season.
